A relief flight of Myanmar Airways International (MAI) landed at Yangon International Airport yesterday afternoon, bringing back 172 Myanmar nationals stranded in Malaysia.
As they arrived in Yangon, officials from the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports, and the Yangon Region government helped for their 21-day quarantine period in line with the regulations of immigration and medical checks.
To bring back the Myanmar citizens who are stranded in foreign countries by relief flights and chartered flights following the instructions of National-Level Central Committee on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs cooperated with the relevant ministries and Myanmar embassies from respective countries. The Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur cooperates with the relevant organizations of Malaysia in accordance with the instructions of Ministry of Foreign Affairs to send back the undocumented Myanmar nationals and those detained at cells by relief flights and has organized 13 relief flights to pick up Myanmar nationals stuck in Malaysia to date. —MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
